From "Brothers at the Club" to "Brothers in Blue"
Cristhian Vasquez & Adonis Brown


Cristhian Vasquez started his Boys & Girls Club career when he was only 9 and barely spoke English. He persevered and became an extraordinary Club member--participating in every program from through high school. It was then he started working part-time at the Club and continued doing maintenance and kitchen duty through college. In May, 2016, Cristhian graduated from New Jersey City University, crossing the stage to receive his diploma with his Boys & Girls Club "brother" right beside him. In March, 2017, Cristhian graduated the Jersey City Police Academy and was sworn in as a police officer. Proudly attending his graduation, along with Boys & Girls Club staff and his family, was Adonis Brown, in his uniform.
Adonis Brown joined the Boys & Girls Club in Jersey City as a young teen. He participated in every program of the Club from Power Hour homework to Keystone leadership. Then he became a junior staff member. After his high school graduation, he worked his way through college with all the support the Club could give. He was on our kitchen staff and Club staff helped him get a second job at Light Horse Tavern. For four years he worked two jobs while a full-time student at New Jersey City University, until his graduation in May, 2016. He was then accepted into the Port Authority Police Academy. In November, 2016, Adonis was sworn in as Port Authority police officer.
